Zo Our Parents 



At this time in our lives, more than any other time, it seems fitting 
that we the graduates extend a loving, grateful thank you to 
our parents. 

It has been they more than any two people that have borne our 
heartaches as well as achievements. It has only been with their wise 
guidance that we have come thus far in our chosen career. 

Gratefully, 
THE CLASS OF 1956

Zhe Nurse 



That cap the nurse on duty wears 
Is costlier than the bonnets gay 
Worn by the wives of millionaires 
Regardless of the price they pay 
Tis something she herself can make, 
A bit of linen, trimmed and turned 
The right to it (for mercy's sake) 
Was with three years of training earned. 

That uniform of spotless white 

Was costlier than a lady's gown, 

'Twas bought with care by day and night 

For those with illness stricken down. 

The royal robes show royal birth 

But every nurses' simple pin 

Is emblematic of her worth 

A symbol she has toiled to win. 




Oh gracious spirit, love imbued, 
That can such tender care accord, 
Perhaps it is, that gratitude 
Must always be your best reward. 
Now out of gratitude appears 
This tribute, done in simple verse 
Unto the dedicated years 
Of all who choose to be a nurse.

A Message Jrom the Senior Class President 







% 



TO THE GRADUATES OF 1956 . . . 

We have come a long way since the night of February 26, 1954, where 
twenty solemn faces peered in gratitude at their parents, instructors, and 
loved ones; each proudly wearing a Faulkner cap signifying the end of 
an extensive period of theory and practical experience. Each of us can 
look back now and recall many moments of discouragement or happiness 
and satisfaction in doing a job well. 

During the last three years, we have come to realize that our prime re- 
sponsibility is to the sick and that nursing is a career involving care of the 
emotional as well as the physical aspects of illness on a twenty-four hour basis. 

September twelfth will have a special meaning for each of us. It not only 
is a special day but a day when we become graduate nurses seeking new 
adventure and the endless opportunities that lie before us but it is a day when 
each of us will go our separate paths into an endless line of different caps 
from all parts of the globe. We will hold the cherished memories of friend- 
ships and valuable experiences in nursing which will last a lifetime. 

Your senior class president, 
Carol Ann Metcalf 





PATRICIA BORGES 

38 Somerset Street 
Taunton, Massachusetts 
March 23, 1935 

/ may be shy but not necessarily bashful. 

Petite Pat is always as neat as a pin. 
Being a perfectionist in many ways, helps 
to make Pat an enthusiastic medical nurse. 
Her laughing brown eyes and infectious 
smile will always be something for us to 
remember. Pat can usually be found clean- 
ing her room, listening to the radio or 
studying. 

Will we ever forget the tales of the 
famous Borges clan ? 



"D^» 



Pa? 



"Barb" 



BARBARA CHARLAND 

367 Bridge Street 
Dedham, Massachusetts 
December 20, 1932 

Red is her hair ivith stars in her eyes. 

Barb, one of the first in our class to 
sport a rock, is a happy-go-lucky lady who 
enjoys food and sports. Her bright red 
hair is a constant source of envy. An 
expert on indoor sports, that bowling 
average is something to boast of. 

This is one gal who believes in mixing 
business with pleasure. We wish her the 
best in both of her careers. 

Will we ever forget the night she had 
her finger sawed off? 







o 



RUTH GREAVES 

21 Clarence Street 
Brockton, Mass. 
September 20, 1935 

Time on my hands. 

"Hey, kids, keep it down to a roar," 
usually describes our Ruthie, who gets 
her eight hours every day, conscientious 
and ambitious, dancing and eating fill her 
spare time. Ruthie is one lass who looks 
good in anything from a burlap bag to 
velvet. Black and white seem to be her 
favorite colors and they certainly do won- 
ders for her. We know she'll go far in 
nursing education. 

Will we ever forget the good use she 
gave the bed in lC? 





"Libby" 



"Ruthie" 




ELIZABETH HEWITT 

18 Central Street 

West Concord, Massachusetts 

August 13, 1935 

/ can be as good as I choose when I 
choose to be good. 

Fun loving, carefree Lib is one gal with 
a pair of shoes for every hour of the day. 
Rarely seen without a smile, this little 
farm lass will be remembered by her 
spontaneous giggle. This is one of the 
fortunate ladies that sleep really helps. 
We're sure she'll go far in the field of 
international nursing relations. 

WilPwe ever forget the peace treaty 
and the banana ? 




MARY ANN JANKINS 
27 Gay lord Street 
Dorchester 24, Massachusetts 
November 22, 1935 

Look to me as a friend and I shall look 
to you as one too. 

"Hey, Kitty, will you help me pick up 
a stitch?" is a familiar tune to this slim, 
blue-eyed lass. Neatness personified, she 
has an ever increasing wardrobe. Kitty's 
"grocery store" always stocked with 
"goodies" had many customers during her 
three years at Faulkner. Her never ending 
energy, quick wit, and devilish grin made 
her popular with the fun-loving. 

Will we ever forget the New Year's 
Eve party where Kitty "Crime Photog- 
rapher" was on hand with the camera? 



'Kitty" 



"Matt" 



MARY MATTIMOE 

586 Hope Street 
Providence, Rhode Island 
September 14, 1934 

My heart belongs to Daddy. 

Matt is the class poet who keeps the 
post office in business and wears out three 
pens a week. An expert on International 
Relations, she appreciates the finer things 
life has to offer. With her "excellent" 
sense of direction, she could direct you 
well across the continent. We wish her 
luck in her chosen field of pediatrics. 

Will we ever forget her affiliation at 
C.H. and the many after class clinics? 





GAIL McINTYRE 

14 Harding Street 
Pawtucket, Rhode Island 
September 1, 1936 

Absence makes the heart grow jonder. 

Our world renown torch singer will be 
quite an addition to Takoma Park. Par- 
tial to redheads, Mac can usually be found 
writing to her pen pal. She is one gal 
who advocates the use of low calorie 
diets and dutch cuts. Mac is always more 
than willing to work relief and we wish 
her Bon Voyage on her long awaited trip. 

Will we ever remember the birthday 
dates of the ever increasing Mclntyre 
clan ? 




'Rosie' 



"Mac" 




ROSEANN MECAGNI 
121 Independence Avenue 
Quincy, Massachusetts 
October 20, 1935 

Those that love me, in return I love. 

Rosie's mischievous spirit and jovial 
manner are sure to bring her the best 
wherever she goes. The class clown keeps 
us in stitches for hours with her memories 
of the centrifuge days. Always bouncing 
with enthusiasm, we'll remember our sad 
tales of woe and how Rosie would play 
mother to us. Optimistic Rosie will long 
be remembered by all of us. 

Will we ever forget her proposal from 
Barney Google ? 




CAROL METCALF 

22 Bartlett Street 
Brockton, Massachusetts 
November 13, 1933 

A friend in need is a friend, indeed. 

Carol can usually be found deep in 
thought, figuring out the latest rules and 
regulations. Thanks, Carol, for all the 
time and effort you so unselfishly do- 
nated to our many class projects and meet- 
ings. She's full of fun but also has a 
serious side which is well appreciated by 
all of us at times. Her ability to get along 
with people we're sure will aid her in 
the future. 

Will we ever forget the many rides in 
"Bessie" ? 



"Carol" 



"Mosk" 



MARION MOSKOS 

77 Beechcroft Street 
Brighton, Massachusetts 
July 16, 1935 



No laws do bind me, yet I obey. 

Mosk, being one of our more collegiate 
ladies, is an authority on European living. 
An up to date wardrobe and "Clackers" 
are among her favorites. Always eager and 
willing to help, Mosk is worth her weight 
in gold. In years to come, we're sure her 
surgical abilities will aid in O.R. tech- 
nique. Success and happiness are in store 
for "our little Greek." 

Will we ever forget her brochure on 
choreography ? 




STEPHANIE MUIRHEAD 

145 West Jersey Street 
Dedham, Massachusetts 
March 13, 1935 

Home is where the heart is. 

Tall, brown-eyed Steph is the pride of 
the Dedham Police Force. She's been a 
real helping hand and has a heart as big 
as a house. Her quiet, unassuming man- 
ner has aided much to cheer her patients. 
We know her sparkling friendly per- 
sonality will add to her abilities in the 
field of nursing. 

Will we ever forget her lesson in "first- 
aid on-the-spot treatment"?

"Kathy" 



"Steph" 




KATHLEEN O'DONNELL 

719 North Union Street 
Rockland, Massachusetts 
September 15, 1934 

When I grow too old to dream. 

Sparkling, sweet Kathy has worked 
hard on many of our class functions. This 
gal has her own special art of where to 
obtain flower decorations. It seems as 
though she's always getting ready to go 
somewhere or do something. "Kathy, sit 
still for five minutes," has been our war 
chant. With her sense of humor and 
eagerness to help others, we're sure she'll 
succeed in both of her careers. 

Will we ever forget her tip-toe trip 
through the cemetery ? 



V 




BETTE PERMATTEO 

69 Lincoln Street 
Winthrop, Massachusetts 
March 7, 1936 

Her eyes tell the story. 

A combination of vim and vigor add 
to this pert Winthropite. Sincere, friendly 
Bette can talk on anything from eye- 
brows to the role of head nurses. Herb's 
pride and joy, is always ready for a good 
time. Her casual coiffure has been one 
of her outstanding assets. Trooping 
through the snow and mud of Boston 
Common to hear the "Four Lads" will 
never be forgotten. 

Will we ever forget the role of the 
Levine tube in Bette's career. 



"Better 



'Nat" 



NATALIE ROBERTS 

51 Chetwynd Road 
Somerville, Massachusetts 
November 29, 1935 

To be or not to be. 

Easy going Natalie is well versed in the 
art of eating grapefruit. A Northeastern 
fan for years, she is a rare combination 
of intelligence and good looks. Nat may 
not be able to solve all our problems but 
she's always willing to listen. Natalie was 
president of Student Government during 
our senior year and she did a wonderful 
job. We're sure she'll succeed both as a 
wife and a nurse. 

Will we ever forget the tale of the 
handcuffed twins ? 










ELIZABETH ROBUS 

White Pond Road 
Stow, Massachusetts 
September 18, 1934 

Success at last is the reward of toil. 

"Good things come in small packages," 
describes our Pete. Talented in the fields 
of knitting, she's always ready to help 
turn heels and toes. Pete can usually be 
found flying to New York. She has served 
as our faithful "alarm clock" for the past 
three years. No one was late for duty 
when Pete was around. 

Will we ever forget the worn spot on 
"the carpet" ? 




'M. L." 



'Pete" 




MARY LEE SEATE 

14 Boulevard Road 
Dedham, Massachusetts 
August 1, 1935 

Courage and hope can conquer all. 

M.L. is our main defender of the 
Mason-Dixon line. An authority on furs 
and plants, her green thumb will surely 
make everything she touches blossom. 

Her cheery smile has lightened the 
hearts of many patients. 

We're sure any O.R. would be well 
equipped with Mary Lee added to the 
staff. 

Will* we ever forget her rendition of 
Einstein's theory? 



\ 




"Sash" 



\ 



ARDELL SHATTUCK 

19 Washington Road 
Hamden, Connecticut 
July 10, 1934 

The law of kindness rules her tongue. 

Perfection plus is the motto of this pert 
Connecticut Miss. Ardell is ready to lend 
her sympathy, advice or just a smile when 
we need it the most. One of the more 
talented gals, she can talk on anything 
from classical music to the method of 
motivation of the amoeba. With her in- 
fectious smile and winning personality, 
we know she'll be a success in whatever 
field she chooses. 

Will we ever forget the famous vocabu- 
lary she acquired during her first few 
weeks at The Faulkner ? 



Faulkner Hospital Pledge and Creed 



"Reverently do I pledge myself to the wholehearted service of those 
whose care is entrusted to this hospital. To that end I will strive in the 
fulfillment of my duties holding secret whatsoever I may learn touching 
upon the lives of the sick. I acknowledge the dignity of the cure of disease 
and the safe-guarding of health in which no act is menial or inglorious. 
I will walk in upright faithfulness and obedience to those under whose 
guidance I am to work, and I pray for patience, kindliness, and understand- 
ing in the holy ministry of broken bodies." 



Class 



by Mary Lee Seate 



September 8, 1953, the day our training started 

Dressed to kill I can see us still, and those boxes and cases we carted. 

The door of Chapin was open wide to greet us on that day 

We met our instructors, had our tea, and settled down to stay 

Our parents gone, our bags unpacked, friendships began to be made 

When all of a sudden, from out in the hall a shrill loud call "Air Raid" 

This was the start of initiation, three days we'll never forget 

Our "air raid" bags were full of things, you remember, I bet! 

When an upperclassman yelled "air raid" we emptied our bags on the floor 

Bowed three times with the bags o'er our heads, oh, our knees were so sore 

But serious classwork the next week we started, with enthusiasm we were bursting 

Physiology, Anatomy, Chemistry, Labs, and of course History of Nursing 

Our uniforms we began to wear which to nursing made us quite adept 

But with glittering white, aprons, and spanking new shoes — something was missing — a 

cap. 
It had to be earned and fought for, our instructors and big sisters would say 

And when discouragements came, we'd hold back those tears and try to think of it that 
way. 

On the wards we went as brave and as bold as a mouse in a lion's den 
Those first beds we made will never be made quite that way again 
It wasn't all work and worry as from this account one might assume 

There was the spaghetti dinner, card parties, glee club, and the dance in Chapin Living 
room. 

Those Friday night trips to Hancock, the night we saw La Rosa 

The impromptu trips to the shower — with clothes on — oh, to live those days over 

A vacation at Christmas, then back to work, to study, to cram, and review 

What happened to those next few months, my gosh, how fast they flew 

The work before capping, will, you ever forget the exams and procedures to pass 

The retakes, the tears, the smiles and the cheers, we never thought we'd last 

But Friday, February 26, it rained like blazes that night 

Twenty white caps placed on twenty proud heads, you never saw such a sight 

We breathed a long sigh of silent relief as our candles were lit by Miss Winn 

Dear God, we prayed, you've granted us caps, now please help us to earn our pins 

The next four months were busy ones with classes and working till seven 

Then study, proctor, shine shoes, wash clothes, and lights out by eleven 

But it was over quite quickly for 'twas soon June. With our prom to look forward to 

The excitement that night as we tried to look "just right" in our gowns of pink, yellow 
and blue. 



History 



The summer was here and as we feared night duty was assigned to us 

Some in the O.R. then started, others on vacations departed, "work relief" the rest of us 

must 
Remember the days on Chapin House roof, the sunburns and tans that we sought 

Or the cool summer evening we'd sit up there and sing, drink punch, eat crackers, or talk 

September was coming, we were all back together, and mighty glad of it too 

For our wing bands were placed on our caps with care, they made us a bit prouder 'tis 
true 

But, a change had been made, we were no longer "probes" who were "lower than a 
worm" 

For the new class had entered, around them attention centered, at initiation we tried to be 
stern 

Classes again we started quite soon, Orthopedics, First Aid, and O.B. 

We studied for finals and passed them all too, in Gyn., E.N.T. and V.D. 

A dance, we decided, was just the thing to liven up the fall 

To Finstien's Party House we went, and believe me we all had a ball 

Card parties and food sales began to blossom to bring our class some money 

There are memories sad and memories bright but most of them are funny 

Remember Moskos and her cigar and Rosie pushing commodes down the hall? 

Nat and the punch bowl, the "Ajax" shampoos. These things we'll treasure most of all 

Again it was March and our class must soon part for Worcester C.H. and Haynes 

Cleaning our closets, packing our clothes, what to do with this junk, racked our brains 

Now write every week, call when you're home, and come to Student meetings 

We said goodbye with smiles and sighs, inside our hearts were beating 

Worcester was first for some of us with its keys, locked doors, and "Big Ben" 

Children's was next, divided dosages and charts. We worked hard but those kids kind 
of crept into our hearts 

To Haynes, another challenge to conquer, senior bands we now wore, underclassmen no 
longer 

February our senior year half over, we were together again with lots of gossip to cover 

Night duty, relief, relief and more nights 

But one consolation, Graduation in sight 

Yearbooks, uniforms, and "pay those back dues" 

It takes work, we found out, to change to whites from those blues 

Our prom, Baccalaureate, Banquet, and then . . . 

We'll stand all in white together again 

For the last time? Well, maybe, but we'll always remember 

Our graduation on the twelfth of September. 



Class 




We, the Class of 1956 of the Faulkner Hospital School of 
Nursing, being of sound mind and body do hereby declare our 
last will and testament. 

To The Faulkner we leave, proud to say, "I am a Faulkner 
graduate." 

To Miss Hennik we leave our admiration and respect of

through.

To the supervisors we leave a pair of roller skates and a 
bottle of "patience" pills. 

To Dr. Stein we leave all our sore throats and headaches 
with thanks for curing us. 

To Miss Allen we leave a new student infirmary. 

To the graduates we leave the undergraduates to take our 
place. 

To the students we leave saying, "Hold your head up high." 

To the doctors, residents, and medical students we leave 
with all the knowledge you have so earnestly tried to instill in 
us. 

To Mrs. Cruise we leave with the hope that we haven't 
caused too many gray hairs. 

To the maids we leave with our overflowing ash trays and 
waste paper baskets. 

To the Faulkner Aid we leave with our appreciation for the 
Friday afternoons spent at the Symphony. 

Patricia Borges leaves her quiet, peaceful manner to Patricia 
Coony and Barbara Lord.

Class 



The lights were dimmed, tension high within the crowd of 
people gathered in the newly dedicated Faulkner Hospital 
Auditorium. As the clock struck eight, the curtains opened 
and out stepped the famous authoress, Miss Carol Metcalf. 
Miss Metcalf, mistress of ceremonies, has recently published 
her latest best seller, "Newest in Parliamentary Procedures." 
Many surprised faces glanced up from the audience as she an- 
nounced, "This is Your Life, the Class of 1956." 

It had been ten years since the class had been together as 
an entire group, so the show would hold many surprises for 
all. Miss Metcalf told of the fond memories of past training 
days, the joys and sorrows, tears and laughter. 

The spotlight shone on an illustrious starlet, Kitty Jankins, 
now starring in the Broadway review, "Dorchester Daze." She 
is also the wife of a TV executive and mother of four little 
boys. Miss Jankins introduced the next guest, Elizabeth Robus, 
who is the star of the TV program, "Do It Yourself." Miss 
Robus is also on the advisory board of many New York hos- 
pitals. 

The next guest on the show was Ruth Greaves, director of 
nurses at a noted Boston hospital. She expressed her belief 
that today's children are tomorrow's nurses. The next of the 
famous seventeen was Gail Mclntyre, flight nurse between 
Boston and Maryland. Gail spoke of meeting several class- 
mates traveling southward. Among them were Marion Moskos 
on a flight to Greece. Miss Moskos, also present, is now com- 
pleting her novel, "Early Grecian Civilization," or "D.P.. versus 
Intellectuals." 

As the evening progressed, it was thrilling to observe how 
famous some of us had become in so short a time. "Wonders 
will never cease," seemed to be the theme of the evening. 




Prophecy 



Miss Barbara Charland was on hand to tell of her newest 
culinary achievements. She really has come up with some won- 
derful advancements in that field. Following Barbara came 
Bette Permatteo, now medical supervisor at The Faulkner. She 
is kept quite busy between supervising and being mother of 
twin boys. 

Half of the fabulous seventeen stood on the stage reminisc- 
ing and getting acquainted again. The wonders of the Class of 
1956 had traveled far and wide. 

Coming all the way from Alaska, by dog sled, was Ardell 
Shattuck, now a medical missionary in the land of the Eskimos. 
She told of the vast opportunities and openings in this field 
of nursing. 

Miss Katty O'Donnell came up from Connecticut where she 
is a part time nurse in a distinguished boys school. The other 
part of the time, Kathy spends bringing up a family and 
keeping up a beautiful home. 

Representing the mental aspect of nursing, came Miss Mary 
Lee Seate, now chairman of the mental health program in 
Illinois. From upper New York state came Natalie Roberts 
who told us of her experiences as a camp nurse in a trailer park. 

Coming to join the festivities from Brazil was Mary Matti- 
moe, wife of a Chinese plastic surgeon and Elizabeth Hewitt, 
now director of the World Health Organization. 

Pat Borges spoke to us of her travels as a Navy nurse. The 
service holds many opportunities for all of us and Roseann 
Mecagni, still bouncing with Faulkner enthusiasm, will vouch 
for this. The last of the class to speak to us was Stephanie 
Muirhead, now "first aid nurse" for the city of Boston. 

A marvelous time was had by all and it certainly was an 
evening to remember through the coming years.
